Hi Jason,

I've created 2 new tables in my database and replicated the naming conventions etc.

Here's the basic structure:
itemcategories table and items
CatID Catname Catlink
1 Category 1 _page1.php
2 Category 2 _page2.php

items table and items
ItemID ItemCatID ItemName ItemLink
1 2 Sub-Link1 _page2.php
2 2 Sub-Link2 _page2.php
3 2 Sub-Link3 _page2.php
4 2 Sub-Link4 _page2.php

I've set all the items as Category 2, so that all rollovers are in that category only.

But I get no rollover sub munu.

Could the problem be that the Category menu is the horizontal 'top' menu and the Items menu is a vertical rollover menu. But on unfiltered tests this doesn't seem to be a problem.


menu.php file extract:

mysql_select_db($database_content, $content);
$query_menuwriter_itemcategories = "SELECT Catlink, Catname, CatID FROM itemcategories";
$menuwriter_itemcategories = mysql_query($query_menuwriter_itemcategories, $content) or die(mysql_error());
$row_menuwriter_itemcategories = mysql_fetch_assoc($menuwriter_itemcategories);
$totalRows_menuwriter_itemcategories = mysql_num_rows($menuwriter_itemcategories);
<ul class="level-0" id="cssmw_home">
<?php if ($totalRows_menuwriter_itemcategories > 0) { // Show if recordset not empty ?>
<?php do { ?>
<li class="parent"><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?><?php echo $row_menuwriter_itemcategories["Catlink"]; ?>"><?php echo $row_menuwriter_itemcategories["Catname"]; ?></a>
// MenuWriter Nested Filter Variable
$_POST["menuwriter_items_CatID"] = $row_menuwriter_itemcategories["CatID"];
$MenuWriter_menuwriter_items = "-1";
if (isset($_POST['menuwriter_items_CatID'])) {
$MenuWriter_menuwriter_items = (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? $_POST['menuwriter_items_CatID'] : addslashes($_POST['menuwriter_items_CatID']);
mysql_select_db($database_content, $content);
$query_menuwriter_items = sprintf("SELECT ItemLink, ItemName, ItemID, ItemCatID FROM items WHERE ItemCatID=%s", GetSQLValueString($MenuWriter_menuwriter_items, "int"));
$menuwriter_items = mysql_query($query_menuwriter_items, $content) or die(mysql_error());
$row_menuwriter_items = mysql_fetch_assoc($menuwriter_items);
$totalRows_menuwriter_items = mysql_num_rows($menuwriter_items);
<ul class="level-1">
<?php if ($totalRows_menuwriter_items > 0) { // Show if recordset not empty ?>
<?php do { ?>
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?><?php echo $row_menuwriter_items["ItemLink"]; ?>"><?php echo $row_menuwriter_items["ItemName"]; ?></a></li>
<?php } while ($row_menuwriter_items = mysql_fetch_assoc($menuwriter_items)); ?>
<?php } // Show if recordset not empty ?>
<?php } while ($row_menuwriter_itemcategories = mysql_fetch_assoc($menuwriter_itemcategories)); ?>
<?php } // Show if recordset not empty ?>
